Providing drinking water and wastewater requires energy – and a lot of it. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the cost of energy as a percent of operating costs for drinking water system can reach as high as 40 percent and is expected to increase 20 percent in the next 15 years. Energy management is becoming a more important aspect of a utility’s asset management program.

The Environmental Finance Center Network is currently seeking community water systems interested in participating in a workshop series that will focus on the development of an energy management plan for each system.

The series will be offered in partnership with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES). Attendance at all three one-day workshops is required, in addition to providing assistance with a half-day energy assessment of your system. Multiple staff and governing board members from each system are welcome to attend.

Based on utility official availability, the series will be offered from June 2016 through September 2016 in a location relevant to participating systems. Participants will benefit from a hands-on workshop series, supplemented with an on-site energy assessment and one-on-one assistance on improving energy management, from establishing a baseline to finance to measurement and verification.
